Year 12 of 2017
A report on Tanzania by Ruby and Abi
Recently, during the majority of July, a group of nine students, 6 being Year 12, travelled to Moshi, Tanzania on a school mission trip. During this trip we spent time playing games with the children at New Life Foundation and teaching them some useful life skills. It was truly an eye-opening experience and incredible bonding time, as we lived, breathed and ate with each other day in and day out. On this trip we were also able to meet and begin to sponsor children who were not sponsored already, it was such a privilege and a once in a lifetime opportunity that we will never forget.
'The School Ball was a tremendous success, and was truly a night of fine dining and dancing. Everybody looked absolutely stunning: the girls impressed in their beautiful gowns and the lads were smartly clad in their suits. Awards for the King and Queen, as well as the best dressed male and female were handed out, with Austin Day, Rebecca Cummins and Geoff Chen taking them away. We are all very grateful to the Ball Committee, especially Sarah Premkumar and Kayla Williams, who put in a great deal of time and effort into making this ball a success', says Damita.
Class of 2015
Year 12 is currently one of the largest of our Secondary classes at Hebron. The twenty three students are a neat bunch who encourage and challenge each other. We were excited to welcome back Ilaria Perich; Ilaria left Hebron in Year 10 but has returned to complete her Secondary studies with us. Ilaria is already making waves and is booked in to set sail on the Spirit of Adventure at the end of Term 2!
Bryan Rajeyya is another new class member who is making a great contribution to Hebron's Worship Band, his impressive guitar skills and voice were on show at camp.
To date a number of students in Year 12 have achieved brilliant results across the curriculum. Zach Turner was awarded 1st place in the Secondary category of our Hebron Speech Competition. He quite literally blew the judges away with his stella performance. Brittany Collecutt and Joshua Scott were also on top of their game with equal 2nd placings. Other memorable competitors were Matthew Long, Juliet Douglas and Kathryn Wang.
Miracle Falaniko was a shining star at school camp, wowing us all with her running of the Talent Quest. This young woman sure knows how to work an audience... and what a voice!
